This is one of our favourite restaurants here in St Annes. We ate here with family for my birthday. When we arrived there was a lovely birthday banner on our table which was a lovely touch. (the staff even gathered round at the end of the meal and sang happy birthday to me.) I was also given a complementary birthday... More

We always get off the set menu when we come here as its great value for money. The service is always spot on and the decor is lovely. It really has an authentic feel, that is until your boyfriend decides to talk in Thai to the Chinese lady, she did correct him with a smile! The food is as you... More

I don't normal write reviews but for this restaurant I feel I must write something. I was staying around the area for a few weeks (family visit) and I felt so home sick and so craving for my home town food (I'm from Hong Kong, China). My family took me to this restaurant and the food is just the real... More

Have visited on a number of occasions over the past 5years but yet to review,... I recommend to all Thai food lovers - the mixed starters are fantastic, the mains are always flavoursome and authentic... personal favourite of mine is the thai green curry with pineapple rice (to share!) on the side. The decor, secluded tables and private nooks on... More

This has to be one of the best places to eat in St Annes. Nothing is too much trouble, attention to detail is amazing and the quality of food matches those high standards, it is not too expensive and the food portion sizes are very good. You are left to breath in between courses, ask for your next course when... More

On our second night out in St Annes we decided to go for a high rated restaurant. Right next door to our previous night out. The Zen promises a far eastern experience and it delivers. But don't worry they don't force you to use chopsticks. Everything was well presented by friendly waitress. There is a lot to choose from,the menu... More
